Morton E. Gurtin mainly focuses on Classical mechanics, Boundary value problem, Plasticity, Viscoplasticity and Isotropy. His Classical mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Flow, Mechanics, Slip and Constitutive equation. His Boundary value problem research integrates issues from Burgers vector and Partial differential equation.

His Plasticity study is associated with Thermodynamics. His work on Continuum mechanics and Crystal plasticity as part of general Thermodynamics research is frequently linked to Energy dependent, bridging the gap between disciplines. The concepts of his Isotropy study are interwoven with issues in Conservative vector field and Dissipative system.
